I haven’t been back to school in awhile, how do I know if this is right for me?
One of the great things about online learning is that some of the typical classroom pressures and anxieties are no longer present. The nature of online learning puts everyone on a equal playing field—unless you choose to share, no one will know if you are 18 or 81.
If you are less concerned about the social aspect of returning to the classroom and more with the technical issues, we encourage you to check out the technical requirements for taking an online course. Please review this carefully, as many of our classes make use of new and emerging technologies.
I work full-time. Are there other students learning online like me?
We have a very diverse student body in our online degree program community. Many of our students work full-time, are stay-at-home parents or are returning to the classroom after a long hiatus. We can almost guarantee that you will have classmates with similar life experiences as you.
I am deployed on active duty. Can I take online classes at UofL?
Yes! You can take online classes from anywhere in the world, provided you have consistent internet access. Our faculty and staff are very supportive of those who serve the country here in the U.S. or around the world and work hard to provide all needed learning resources so you can succeed
What are the benefits of online learning?
The biggest benefit of online learning is that you can work to earn your degree from your own home while raising a family, working full-time or experiencing particular life circumstances that make commuting to campus difficult or impossible.
At UofL you are taught by the same world-class faculty as our on-campus students. You read the same books, do many of the same assignments and earn the same degrees. The biggest difference is that you are able to do it in a way best fits your lifestyle.
